I have taught grades kindergarten through fourth grade for 24 years! I like to continually work on doing a better job and honing my craft.
I use Bloom's Taxonomy to help my students apply what they learn in creative ways. I also believe in giving good formative assessments so that I can determine which students need additional assistance and I can pull groups to help them.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from University of Georgia and won the Edwin D. Pusey Prize for Academic Excellence at UGA the same year. I was National Board Certified in 2003 in Middle Generalist Education, and have been nominated for teacher of the year many times over the years. :) I serve as our school's United Way chairman, and we have won overall fundraising school for our county six years in a row.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from UGA in 1990 with a bachelor's in Early Child Education. I have a master's degree from Georgia State University and earned National Board Certification in 2003.
I love teaching and collaborating with my peers!
